    Eclipse, Maven, and MANIFEST.MF Dependencies

    Rich DiCroce Novice

      I'm trying to Maven-ize an EE application. I'm close to having everything deploy without problems, but I've run into an issue I can't figure out. Specifically, I need to add some Dependencies to the web project's MANIFEST.MF, in accordance with AS7 classloading rules. No matter what I do, I cannot get Eclipse/Maven to include the Dependencies in the manifest file. I've tried this:

       

      {code:xml}

         <plugin>

          <groupId>org.maven.apache.plugins</groupId>

          <artifactId>maven-war-plugin</artifactId>

          <version>2.2</version>

          <configuration>

           <archive>

            <manifestEntries>

             <Dependencies>javax.faces.api, org.joda.time, org.jboss.dmr, org.jboss.as.controller-client</Dependencies>

            </manifestEntries>

           </archive>

          </configuration>

         </plugin>

      {code}

       

      I've also tried this, with my existing MANIFEST.MF:

      {code:xml}

         <plugin>

          <groupId>org.maven.apache.plugins</groupId>

          <artifactId>maven-eclipse-plugin</artifactId>

          <version>2.9</version>

          <configuration>

           <manifest>${basedir}/src/main/resources/META-INF/MANIFEST.MF</manifest>

          </configuration>

         </plugin>
      {code}

       

      Neither works; I get a default MANIFEST.MF in both cases. Any ideas how to fix this?
